Music Friday Prompt #10 “Freedom for the Stallions”

Happy Friday to all of the Music Freaks, Lovers, Possessors and Poets!

Today I present for your poetical pleasure a song that was produced by Allen Touissaint. I ran across an interview that he did back in April 2014. He has been hailed by some as one of the greatest songwriter/producers to come out of New Orleans in many years.

I don’t know if that is true, but I do know that he has been connected to many artists including Elvis Costello (“River in Reverse“), Lee Dorsey (“Working in a Coal Mine“), Aaron Neville (“Hercules“), the Beatles (“Lady Madonna“) and Betty Harris (“Mean Man“). If you are interested in learning more about him, check out this interview.

Freedom for the stallion
Freedom for the mare and her colt
Freedom for the baby child
Who has not grown old enough to vote

Lord, have mercy what you gonna do
About the people who are praying to You?
They got men making laws that destroy other men
They’ve made money God, it’s a doggone sin
Oh Lord, You got to help us find a way

Big ship’s a sailing
Slaves all chained and bound
Heading for a brand new land
That some cat said he upped and found

Lord, have mercy, what You gonna do
About the people who are praying to You?
They got men making laws that destroy other men
They’ve made money God, it’s a doggone sin
Oh Lord, You got to help us find a way

Some sing a sad song
Some got to moan the blues
Trying to make the best of a home
That the man didn’t even get to choose

Lord, have mercy, how You gonna be
With people like John and me
They’ve got men building fences to keep other men out
Ignore him if he whispers and kill him if he shouts

Oh Lord, You got to help us find a way
Oh Lord, You got to help them find the way
Oh Lord, You got to help us find a way

      I am so glad you liked this one 😀 I’ve been reading interviews from different songwriters and getting plenty of ideas for Music Friday.

    I think I’ve caught up enough so that I can breathe…
    Some days, weeks, months are just busier than others 😉
